UCAs

So, I知 looking to buy aftermarket upper control arms and I am torn between the ICON tubular delta joint UCAs and the new Bilstein B8 UCAs. Does anyone have any advice or words of wisdom between the two? I知 looking to lift the front of my SR5p 3 inches to get 285s on.

Buy the ones that let you get the most positive caster.

buy whatever set your local offroad shop can rebuild in a day, has rebuild parts on hand, and give you a warrantee on parts and labor. UCA probably won't break, but if you go offroading alot, they will probably need to be rebuilt eventually and at least inspected frequently.

Since you are willing to pay top dollar for top dollar parts, they should be made of top dollar materials. DOM and chromoly is overkill for UCA, but since you are paying for it....chromoly. Now, if you are looking at chromoly stuff....I would seriously look into the following two companies:

Camburg and total chaos because of your budget and price point.

If you want something chromoly and is more affordable: look up built right fabrications.

If you just want to get your tires to fit without rubbing...there are alot of less expensive alternatives.

I wheel with alot of different people with alot of different setups that cost different amounts. We all perform about the same. Difference is rebuildability, availability of parts, and turn around time. If this is only a street setup..then it doesn't really matter. So you pay more up front so you have less down time when you break something later on down the line.

The average weekend warrior with a lift 4 or less who does moderate off-roading here and there is totally fine with JBAs anything more is just bling.

I have camburg uniball UCA on my '15 TE rebuilt after 2 years seems durable BUT they claim it corrects caster I very much doubt this is true since I tried for years to get alignment to factory spec and failed with multiple shops.

There has always been a discussion about Ball-Joint vs Uniball.

Since the ICON Delta-Joint has been out, we have seen this be the most popular Uniball option.

Since Dirt King released their Ball-Joint, this has definitely been most popular for us.




Other popular Uniballs...

Total Chaos
Camburg

Other popular Ball-Joints...

SPC
Camburg
JBA
